The rats flee!
The United States has closed its consulate office in southern Türkiye indefinitely, predicting “several weeks” of heated protests linked to the ongoing war between Israel and Palestinian militants in Gaza.
The US Embassy in Türkiye announced the move on Wednesday night, saying the consulate in the city of Adana would be closed to the public “until further notice” while urging American citizens to avoid traveling to the area.
“Large demonstrations related to events in Israel and Gaza are expected throughout Türkiye for the next several weeks. Any gathering, even those intended to be peaceful, could escalate and turn violent,” the embassy said in a statement, adding that “protest activity may result in enhanced police presence, road closures, and traffic disruptions.”
Yeah, there are disruptions alright.
The question on everyone’s lips is: where is Erdogan?
Turkey has a military. A serious military.
They have a border with Syria.
Why are they not marching an army towards Jerusalem?
The Turkish people support it.

But we’ve all had enough talking.
It’s time to march.
Hezbollah and Hamas are waiting for backup.
Everybody’s bringing their whole crew.
It’s time to move.
I don’t think the people should tolerate this inaction by Erdogan.
It’s time to mobilize and move.
There’s a war on, boys.
There’s no room on the sidelines.
